What Was I Thinking

I broke up with my boyfriend of four years because he is nasty vindictive and abusive. I am hurt and confused and I do not know how to feel. I am beyond angry. To boot I need to focus on figuring out what I want to do with myself. I cannot seem to get motivated to do anything. I feel emotionally wounded and crippled by the experience. Any suggestions on how to pull myself out of this rut. I do not feel like going out but given his abusive nature he isolated me from my friends and now I do not have any support.

I too have been there! just get to know yourself. find out what you like to do and do them after time you will have accomplished 1 getting to know what you like 2. meeting people who like the same things as you 3. self confidence , Its a great feeling ! you now know which types of mn to avoid!

hi there, i can relate alot to your story. i kicked my cruel, abusive husband out 1 1/2 yrs ago after losing my mind, my self esteem, everything. i couldnt see what he was doing but he was isolating me from everybody, even my family. after about 6mths of crying, feeling sorry for myself, wondering what to do, i pulled up my socks, found a little basement suite to live in, and tried to go on with my life. it was the best decision i ever made. after your out of the situation you will find everything will fall into place. i didn't go out for probably 4-5 months, but finally got out and started living again. you will become stronger from this i promise. if i can help anymore let me know... all the luck to you
